Default Outer Banks Question

Is the first week of April a good time to be down there? Thought about taking a long weekend with the kids during their Spring Break. How will weather and fishing be?? Anybody know any good beach rentals. Only need two bedrooms, but would like to be on the ocean. May even be open to a midweek rental.

Weather in the OBX during spring and fall is a total crap shoot. You may experience wind, cold and rain one day and have mild conditions the next.. Same applies for the water conditions.. Smooth one day and rockin' the next!

Gus (Auguste) will undoubtedly chime in here as he recently rented on the water/beach.

Shoot Reel Obsession (Paul) or Blueh20pc (Chris) a PM or e-mail. They both live down there and are great guys.

I have personally stayed in Pirates Cove and give them a and I have also rented a house down in Avon. Different, completely different, as would renting on the beach..

Good luck!

Excellent response Chris. . . unpredictable weather . . . but the rental rates are much lower . . . less crowded . . . less traffic

I plan to be there in the first week of April to do some work on my boat.

Good luck

PS We moved the THT OBX Fun-n-Fish to first weekend in June so we can have better weather (we hope)

Weather will be on and off like Chris said.

Fishing will be just gearing up, offshore will be the last of the YFT for the summer, with some early Mahi (dolphin). Mostly scrapper YFT's. The fleet will also just be waking up from the winter nap, so they may be doing some searching around. Check out Blue Devil, Seaducer, Skirt Chaser, Dream Girl, Point Runner charters. Look at the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center web page to see the reports daily. Inshore/nearshore boats can get you on some good bottomfishing during that time. Check on the Poacher, Sinbad, Rock Solid, DOA charters. Link from the OIFC website to the specific boats to view the reports.

Village realty has a very nice website for Central OBX listings. I'd recommend them for the rental acommodations. Most of the hotels around here can provide suites also.

That time of year it will be easy and affordable to pick up a rental condo right on the beach - just decide where you want to be Nags Head, KDH or Kitty Hawk. Most of the realtors have been thorough websites with lots of great interior shots. The water will probably be very cold, but the weather, as others have said, is truly a crap shoot.
